P. Steen, H.C. Pedersen
1993 Journal of Sugarbeet Research  
Since 1990 Maribo Seed has conducted field trials with transgenic sugarbeet. Glyphosate tolerance has been the main objective. Trials are performed in Denmark, France, England, and Belgium, and in 1993 for the first time in USA. As sugarbeet varieties are hybrids, the transformation can be made on either multigerm, diploid fatherJines or monogerm, diploid motherJines (CMS-lines). Our development work has involved a range of different genetical constructs from Monsanto. The Agrobacterium
